John Meed

John Meed is a singer-songwriter based in Cambridge described by R2 Rock’n’Reel as: ‘a consummate storyteller’ whose songs are ‘thoughtful and thought provoking.’

‘John Meed inhabits his subject matter, digging deep into the emotional content to find a surprising angle in a way that has seen him compared, rightly, to Leonard Cohen, Al Stewart and Jaques Brel.’ Shindig

‘A breath of fresh, mellow, unsophisticated and unpretentious folk air.’ Rock Society

‘Pavilion Parade said it all really – who said political songwriting was dead?’ Eric Bogle

John’s latest album, Never enough, is now available. You can order a copy here. ‘Really thought-provoking and interesting songs’ (Genevieve Tudor, BBC Radio Shropshire).‘There is some beautiful writing on Never enough (Greg Russell, BBC Radio Sheffield). ‘A lovely, lovely album.’ (Sue Marchant, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire). Never enough is possibly John Meed’s finest work, finding him totally in control of his palette of words and ideas’ (Les Ray, Unicorn). ‘The rewards are worth the reaping’ (Mike Davies, FATEA). ‘A great album to check out, with some highly original song writing – highly engaging and equally thought-provoking’.’ (Allan Wilkinson, Northern Sky)

Love to you all

Well, these are truly strange times! We are all starting to realise how important are live music, and indeed live events generally. I hope that you and those you love are able to stay well, and that we will get through this difficult period safely.

Sadly, all my lovely gigs for the summer have been postponed. I am instead giving short mini-concerts via Facebook live. The first four are available here:

March 28 Three songs inspired by Nepal

April 11 Two new songs

April 19 Three songs for Huguette

April 26 Three songs from ‘Never enough

I plan further mini concerts, usually on Sunday at 11.30 UK time. Check my Facebook page for updates.

Keep safe and I look forward to seeing you when things return to normal. You can listen to  my latest album, Never enough, here.
